Hoodie Allen Bio

Hoodie Allen

The stage name of Steven Markowitz, Hoodie Allen is a hip-hop artist born in Plainview, New York in 1988. Not the typical rapper, Allen attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he majored in finance and marketing, and eventually found a job at Google. Originally working with partner Obey City, Allen released the EP Bagels & Beats in 2009. After Obey City left the collaboration, Hoodie Allen, who picked up his nickname as a child, released four mixtapes, most notably Pep Rally in 2010 and Leap Year in 2011, that included singles like “Cake Boy” and “Fame Is for Assholes.” True to his geek roots, Hoodie Allen kicks up buzz on platforms like Twitter, SoundCloud, and Ustream. His fans happily join the Hoodie Mob, a grassroots group of promoters who draw attention to his shows.

Hoodie knows how to put on a show. He takes his songs and completely reworks them for his shows. The last concert I attended was very rock-influenced (despite his music being hip hop/rap) and the end-result was absolutely amazing. Never a dull moment during his live shows. His gratitude and love for his fans is so apparent in everything that he does. What I also admire is that he isn't afraid to explore different sounds on his records. Every album is a departure from its predecessor, showing how Allen's rhymes have become wittier and funnier. Growing with an artist is probably one of the coolest experiences. Favourite album: Leap Year. Favourite Song: too many to count! Catch one of his live shows if you can! Hoodie's effort, passion, and perseverance towards making good tunes reflects in his records and concerts.
